Lockdown Blues

Every cloud has a silver lining The sky is dark in the east Corona virus keeps us whining At the approach of this invisible beast! Lockdown clamped in the city Enforced strictly with force No excuses evoke pity And no signs of any remorse However, the silver lining shone To show light all the way Creating ideas to kill time alone And keep busy throughout the day Ladies cook new recipes to taste Those tickle the olfactory nerve All mouths water as we rush in haste To share it before it’s ready to serve Others take to stitching face mask From old clothes used for wear Simple design not a difficult task Sufficient to prevent virus scare Children test their acting skill Innovating characters with ease Elders guide them with an arduous drill Those make them work like bees As the Lockdown days pass by It leaves behind a plethora of skills Those are ready to harness and apply Invigorating the mind with untold thrills
